Wow! Talk about momentum!

The very successful Captain America: The Winter Soldier topped the box office this weekend, beating out Fox’s Rio 2.

Some believe that this is because families are out enjoying the good weather, AND Rio 2 is competing with Muppets Most Wanted and Mr. Peabody & Sherman in their genre.

Still, Captain America is expected to rake in $158 million domestically, making $476.1 million worldwide! The first Captain America only brought in $370.5 million TOTAL!

Even Divergent has only made $175.1 million worldwide, up to this point!

It'll be inneresting to see how long The Winter Soldier can keep its run going!

Victoria's Secret stops production on their clothing line! Get the deets HERE!!

WHOA. We didn’t see this coming!

In an effort to focus more on their main offerings, Victoria’s Secret will be immediately ending production on their apparel.

That means you can say bye to their denim, maxi skirts, cardigans, and more, which will most likely will be phased out and unavailable to purchase by the time fall comes around.

But before PINK fans go into a panic, we should mention that they will continue selling the line, as well as their swimwear coverups and nightgowns. Essentially, anything that correlates to their "core" offerings and what you can already find in a store, will stay!

Yet, the news still comes as a shock since it was reported that their apparel offerings were quite profitable, though the CEO of VS, Sharen Jester, revealed:

The city of Irwindale is giving the local Sriracha factory 90 days to clean up their act!

Iron Man, Thor, Captain America. Each hero has his own movies, but all fall under the blanket of The Avengers. And it's a blanket made of cash!

According to Box Office Mojo, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now officially the most successful franchise in film history!

After The Winter Soldier's blockbusting first week, Marvel's total box office gross is $2.47 billion!

That officially puts it over Harry Potter, a close second with $2.39 billion, and Star Wars with $1.9 billion!

But how long can Marvel last on top? There are three Fantastic Beasts movies just dying to sink their claws into the box office, and Star Wars is finally going to kick back into hyperdrive in 2015.

But Marvel can keep putting out two or more big movies every year! No matter who comes out on top, it's audiences - and Hollywood - that are winning big!

Robert Pattinson Made HOW MUCH For The Twilight Movies?! The Answer May Surprise You!

robert pattinson twilight movies pay rate millions

No wonder Edward Cullen sparkles - he's made of freakin' gold!!!

Thanks to a lawsuit involving the bonus payments for the Twilight films, we now have some inside dirt on just how much stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart got paid.

R-Patz wasn't a very well known actor before the first movie, so he only got a bonus of $300,000 - despite the adaptation raking in over $350 million worldwide!

But by the time the sequel rolled around, apparently Robert and Kristen had a pretty good idea of their value to the new fanbase! Because their deals for New Moon contained a retroactive bonus of $2.5 mil for the first film! Not bad!

But there's a reason Robert can afford to make indies for the rest of his life! He reportedly scored $25 mil for Breaking Dawn Parts 1 & 2, AND a small percentage of the profits!

And considering the two-parter made a combined $1.5 BILLION worldwide, Robert is sitting pretty!

Well, prettier we guess!

Find out why Miley Cyrus doesn't want to be a part of Seventeen magazine HERE!

Sure, Vogue didn’t want her — but nearly every other magazine does!!

Which allows Miley Cyrus to be very selective about which glossies she covers, and which she doesn’t.

Lately, the in-demand singer seems to be wanting to shed her youthful image more and more in favor of a fashion throne. She’s been quick to cover mags like W, Love, Cosmo, and Harper’s Bazaar, but has reportedly completely refused to be a part of Seventeen magazine in any way.

According to a source:

“She’s very, very selective when it comes to magazine covers. Miley declined Seventeen and denied being a part of it, completely.”

But Seventeen lurrrrves Smiles, and so do their readers!

So Miley’s apparent disdain for the magazine hasn’t stopped them from featuring her constantly in their publication — without her consent.

According to a Seventeen spokesperson:
